Hess Corp. (NYSE: HES) said Nov. 9 that drilling of the Aspy exploration well offshore Nova Scotia reached total depth of 7,400 m (24,278 ft).

The prospect did not encounter commercial quantities of hydrocarbons and Hess’ share of the well cost through September 30, 2018 will be expensed in the third-quarter and reflected in the company’s quarterly report on Form 10-Q.

BP Canada as operator and Hess each hold a 50% participating interest.
